I am a person that has always do/fixed things myself. Repair the car, lawn mower, rebuild the deck, new roof on house. This week I replaced the belt on the clothes dryer moved a display case into my booth at the local flea market, installed an antenna on the roof of the house. Later this year I plan to repair/replace most the roof on the house. I do have a collapsed vertebrae in the neck which was fused 20 years ago. I have congestive heart failure and must pace myself as far as physical exercise. I also suffer from arthritis in the left hip and take hydrocodone for that as well as the lower back.
